But first

  

My final dress fitting has happened and once I order my veil, every part of my wedding ensemble will be in place. I can’t wait to tell you how the fitting went. After that, I will share the entire outfit.

But first, I have to tell a tale of woe. A story about a petite girl who ordered a dress and then feared that dress would be too big.

That girl is me. When I first picked out my wedding dress, the sample size was a ten. That dress swallowed me up. They took my measurements and found I was a 6-6-8. You know, size-six boobs, size-six waist, size-eight hips.

After the initial shock of feeling extra huge because wedding sizes run extra small, Momma Kettle and I decided on the size six. The dress had an A-line ball gown skirt, so we’d rather fit the boobs than the hips in this case.

I worried about the dress fitting too loosely. The top has 3D flowers all over it and wouldn’t be easy to alter. I didn’t want to risk ending up having to fidget with dress all night long or having a saggy tube-top dress. If you’ve ever had a saggy tube top, you feel my pain.

Well, I didn’t do much exercising because I was terrified of losing weight. The size ten was huge on me, the eight would be too big, and the six might even be too big. At least that’s what was going through my head after we ordered the dress. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what happened next. I got to my fitting, eager to try on my dress.

I got into the room with my consultant. She tried to zip up the dress. It wouldn’t zip. She called for help from the front of the store. One woman had to hold the dress together while the other one zipped. I was almost tipped over several times.

And my dress has buttons. Those little buttons that require a special little hook to get closed. Again, one had to hold it closed while the other buttoned. Then the consultant pulled on the skin of my back. It hurt. When I said ouch, she replied, “I just want to make sure you don’t have a back ass.” That’s a verbatim quote.

I had back booty, Oprah arm,六开彩历史开奖结果记录, and side boob everywhere. I had achieved my goal of not gaining weight. I had over-achieved it. The consultant began assuring me the dress could be taken out and all would be fine.

Momma Kettle told her no. She said I would go back to yoga and I’d be tiny again in a few weeks. Then she had me walk, sit, dance, and twirl in my dress so she could make sure it would stay up (that dress wasn’t going anywhere!) and see how it looked.

She took some pictures and I loved the photographs. But I couldn’t breathe, and my ribs got bruised, and I was sure there was no way I could eat and dance and breathe all night if I wore the dress that way.

I firmly believe in not forcing myself to conform to some image of how I’m supposed to look, but it’s not like we have the time or money to rush order some other dress. So I will take my butt back to yoga so I can wear my wedding dress while eating, dancing, and breathing all night long.

I care more about my health than my appearance, and if I’m honest with myself, I honestly haven’t been behaving as if I cared about either since we ordered a dress I was afraid would be too big.

Since I’m Miss Kettle, I had some images saved on my computer of kettle in case I need them. Remember Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast (on 3D in a theater near you, woot!)? Yeah, I feel like her right now.

How did your first fitting go? Did you dress have to be altered?
